Prime Day 2023 Tablet Deals: recap

Best Amazon Prime Day Tablet Deals: Check out all the best offers now
Amazon Prime Day in October came and went, which means it's time for a recap of the event. In this article, we will talk about the awesome Prime Day tablet deals we saw during the event and reminisce about the shopping bonanza for Prime Members.

Also, be sure to check out our Amazon Spring Sale 2024 expectations, since Amazon could launch a Spring Sale event this year, letting you score sweet savings on a new tablet even before Amazon Prime Day.

iPad deals

Apple products rarely receive big discounts, even during shopping events. And unfortunately, Amazon Prime Day in October wasn't an exception to that rule. We didn't see huge discounts on Apple's tablets this time around. However, there were a few nice deals available to Prime Members on the hunt for a new Apple tablet, enabling them to snatch a new slate bearing the Apple logo for less.

For example, the iPad Air (5th Generation) was available for $99 off its price, while the iPad 9th gen and iPad 10th gen were on sale for $79 off and $50 off, respectively.

Galaxy Tab deals

Unlike Apple's tablets, Samsung's Galaxy Tabs receive big discounts on shopping events like Amazon Prime Day. This is why we saw big discounts — up to $350 big — on some of the best Galaxy tablets during Amazon Prime Day in October.

The Galaxy Tab S7+ with 128GB of storage space was discounted by a whopping $350, while the 256GB Galaxy Tab S7 FE was available with an awesome $250 markdown.

Lenovo Tab deals

While all eyes were on Apple's tablets and Samsung's fancy Galaxy Tabs, Lenovo's slates also received some of that sweet Prime Day love. True, the discounts weren't as massive as with the Galaxy Tabs, but Lenovo's slates are also way more budget-friendly than Samsung's Galaxy Tab S tablets, which means deal hunters were able to snatch a new Lenovo tab at a pretty sweet price.

The Lenovo Tab P11, for example, was available for $189.99, which is $80 below its usual sticker price. Those in the market for something more budget-friendly had the chance to grab a Lenovo Tab M9 for only $99.99 — a decent $50 off its usual cost.

Fire and Microsoft Surface deals

We should mention that Amazon Prime Day brought a slew of sweet deals on Amazon's own Fire tablets and Microsoft's productivity-oriented Surface slates, too. The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with 256GB of storage was a whopping $611 off its price on Amazon, while the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 with an Intel 12th Gen i7 chip, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage space was discounted by $310 at the retailer.

As for Fire tablets, deal hunters had the opportunity to get an Amazon Fire HD 10 for just $74.99, which was 50% below sticker. The Amazon Fire Max 11 was also available with a sweet discount. Those in the market for this nice slate were able to get one for $149.99 — a sweet $80 off the usual cost.
